    2. Side Selection

      1. Players may mutually agree who sits on the left and right side, corresponding to Player 1 and Player 2 respectively, at the start of the Match. Players are committed to this selection for the entirety of the Match. If Players cannot agree to a Side Selection, they will play a Best-of-Three Rock-Paper-Scissors to determine who picks their side for the first Round. For all subsequent Rounds and Matches, the winner will select a side first.

      2. Double Blind Character Selection
        Either Player may request that a double blind selection occur. In this situation, a Tournament Organizer will be told, in secret, each of the Players’ character choices for the first Round. Both Players are to then select their first Round character, with the staff validating the character selections. If a Player does not select the character they told to the Tournament Organizer they forfeit that Game.

If the losing Player has chosen to change their character they must use Random Stage Selection.

    4. Tie Games
